Does it Really Take a Village to Raise a Child?

(There is also a good video about the Domenic Johanssen abduction story at the top of the article.)

As you can see through the Johansson story – ideas have consequences! If the governing authorities believe that children belong to the collective or the state they will try to force parents to raise their children a certain way. They may even kidnap children to achieve their goals!  [Read More]
